VIENNA- The international organization "Friends of Humanity" has asked Cairo to put a final end to the problem of Palestinian students and other citizens stranded in the Gaza Strip.

The organization in a statement on Saturday said that hundreds of Palestinian university students could not travel outside the Strip via the Rafah crossing with Egypt to complete their university education in Turkey, Britain and the USA in addition to Egypt and other Arab countries.

It said that the students could thus lose the opportunity to join the current academic year 2009-2010 if they remained cut off in the besieged Strip.

Friends of Humanity noted that tens of those students had won scholarships in various universities abroad and are liable to lose them.

The human rights group condemned the Egyptian authorities for participation in the siege on Gaza, calling on Cairo to facilitate the entry of medicine, supplies and construction material into the Strip and allow traffic of passengers in both directions by opening the Rafah terminal.
